Abstract
So… sitting is bad for you On average, office workers spend 5-6hr sitting down (Cowan-Harris, 2014) Recreational sitting (>4hr/day) is related to raised mortality regardless of physical activity participation (Stamatakis, Hamer, & Dunstan, 2011) Standing desks: a popular way of reducing sedentary behaviour and have been investigated in the context of: Energy expenditure (Benden, Blake et al. 2011, Gilson, Suppini et al. 2012, Reiff, Marlatt et al. 2012) Acceptability (Grunseit, Chau et al., 2013) Metabolic markers (Buckley, Mellor et al., 2014) …but what about cognitive performance?
